Work continued this week with planing of the hull continuing and repair work of the grounding damage making major progress.
Old repairs to the area forward of the keel were ground back and the underlying damage exposed. The repairs were poorly done and were delaminating. The area was cleaned up and new fibreglass laid up.

It's great to have exposed and fully repaired the original damage around the keel. Provides confidence that this work will be a real and lasting fix to the problem!
